Sugar Mountain

This stacked dessert does not play around. A brownie stacked with a scoop of cheesecake, followed by a sugar cone dipped in white chocolate, followed by a confetti doughnut, followed by cotton candy and finally topped off with powdered sugar. You deserve this.

Cheese Stuffer Doritos

If you love cheese, Doritos and greasy goodness, this is the snack for you. Farm to Fryer is bringing deep fried marble cheesed dusted with Doritos. Like a mozza stick but 10x better.

Strawberry Shortsteak

This is certainly a unique one. This cheesesteak is covered in provolone cheese and then topped with a strawberry sauce and icing sugar, all between a sweet doughnut bun. Sweet and salty all in one!

Canadian Bacon Pickle Balls 

Pickles are deep fried with a hot dog in the middle. Because who doesn't love pickles, hot dogs and deep fried food?
